I've missed an appointment somewhere. Just to recap, after not so great news in January Matthew had a follow up appointment in February, which was a bit of a non-event. The fluid in his eye was down a little bit so we were keep meds the same, to be reviewed in April, which leads me to today's appointment.
Left eye -6/6 (perfect), cataract stable
Right eye - 6/36 Not good, that's only the second line of the eye chart. A scan showed there is still fluid on his retina.
Meds: Dr D wants to trial a stronger topical steriod for his right eye for the next four weeks. All his other medication will stay the same. The new drop will have to go in 4 times a day and his contact lens will have to be removed each time. Oh, he's just going to love that news...
Flucon - ceased
Prednefrin Forte - 4x per day, right eye
Homatropine - One drop every 2nd day both eyes
Redipred - 1ml every 2nd day
Methotrexate - 10mg per week
Naprosyn - 250mg per day
Folate - 50mg per day
Follow up 4 weeks (12 May 2009)
